Most of us grew up with fairy tales, of one sort or another. Almost everyone has a favorite, or a whole book of favorites. Tricky things, fairy tales; they change with the years, adapt themselves to their audience / culture, fade in one place only to reappear in a new form half a world away. They are stories of magic and enchantment; of men in the worlds of faerie (or more recently, faeries in the worlds of men); of talking animals and curses, enchanted shoes and porridge pots; of dragons and ogres and giants, quests and princesses and pixies.
Fairy tales have been inspiring and influencing the fantasy genre for many years, adding color and quirks and style – and sometimes running off, giggling, with the plot. This is a bundle full of wonder, fairytale-fashion. Well-loved stories come up new in Christine Pope’s Ashes of Roses and the multi-author anthology Once Upon a Kiss. The darker side of the fairy tale comes to the fore in Gwynn White & Erin St Pierre’s Queen of Extinction. Talking animals, witches, damsels and royalty predominate in T. Kingfisher’s quirky tale The Raven and the Reindeer, and Alethea Kontis’s Trixter. Charlotte English offers a mish-mash of magic markets, wayward boots and faerie royalty in Faerie Fruit and Bessie Bell and the Goblin King. And Anthea Sharp and I mix fairy-tale lore with the modern world in Feyland and Faery Unexpected.
This bundle of nine superb books offers a complete banquet of magic, witchcraft, enchantment and trickery for a fine feast of reading!
